      Dear Intel VisualBios

       

      I now note in -

       

      http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24326/eng/WY_0030_ReleaseNotes.pdf

       

      "BIOS Version 0028 - WYLPT10H.86A.0028.2014.0814.1906

      About This Release:

      .......

      New Fixes/Features:

       

      Updated Visual BIOS to version 2.2.8.

      Fixes include:

      ..........

      Updated performance pages to support simplified needs of

      NUC products going forward."

       

      ..............more like _PRODUCTS_GOING_BACKWARD_

       

      From this statement it seems to me that your company clearly does not understand why a customer would pay the same money for your plain looking bare-bones PC as would cost to buy a well polished laptop or netbook.... It is the same reason that in a previous generation car companies in your country failed to understand why people would buy a VW beetle instead of their product.

       

      It is the reason I pay a premium to buy a top end "K" series CPU and then don't over-clock it. It is about not hiding their light (in this case Intel's engineering) under a bushel (in this case advanced settings in a bios now hidden by the user interface). I am quite wealthy enough to buy a really quite nice Apple laptop, a great deal more polished than an Intel NUC, but I _want_ to see what is under the hood of what is now _my_property_ and the _freedom_ to add parts to it and adjust it _if_ and when _I_ wish, not when some large ugly yank company may deem fit to permit me to do so.

       

      I fear Intel is in danger of making a "Ford Edsal" and finally doing an "MGM Grand" to themselves.

       

      Respectfully yours,
